Pinnacle Papers


4 Jan 2013 11:56AM
Has anyone used Pinnacle Papers? I have just got a trial box and I am very pleasantly suprised by the quality of the print ( I am using a Canon Pro 9000 11 printer)

Interested to see if anyone has knowledge of the papers light fastness and longevity

Pinnacle Papers are excellent. They are right up there with Permajet for print quality.

I have used Pinnacle Lustre 300gsm with my Epson 3800 Printer and really rate it.

It will be at least 100 years before any meaningful answer to that can be given.

However, most OEM inkjet inks are guaranteed by their manufacturers for about 80 years and I suspect that inks are more important than papers in this respect.

You could do a test yourself by making a print then cover half the print with a card hinged for inspection.
Place it in a south facing window that gets full sun for several months.

I did this several years ago using non premium paper with alarming results after only a week or so.

My thinking also where compatible inks will show their true colours, no pun intended.

Like the uneven if it was intended! This si useful advice - thank you! I have used non premiumn papers and seen deterioration over 3-4 years although I have found Brilliant papers I printed on a while ago seem to have little deterioration. I have just had delivered some Pinnacle papers and I have to say the image emerging is very very good indeed.

Thanks

Steve.

Just to agree with earlier contributors, I use Pinnacle paper (Lustre 300gsm) on a Canon Pixma Pro9000 and am delighted with the results. I would recommend sticking to Canon inks though. Use Pinnacle's profile (free d/l) and you should get great results.
